KSDK Reports Florissant Police Searching for Person of Interest in Valerie Butler Case

Authorities looking for Paul Tripp in connection to Valerie Butler's disappearance.

KSDK reported today that Florissant Police are looking for Paul Tripp in connection to the death of Valerie Butler, a Maryland Heights woman who went missing in early February. She was in Bridgeton on March 3.

The news station said Tripp is 27, Caucasian, weighs 175 pounds and is 5 foot 10 inches tall.

KSDK reported Butler's family believes she may have overdosed. A quick search on Missouri's CaseNet system shows a Paul A. Tripp from Florissant charged with several drug-related crimes.

The latest of these crimes was in 2010, when he pleaded guilty to producing or possessing with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
